Abstract

The causal involvement of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) in the pathophysiology of common human diseases has been discussed in the preceding chapters. This chapter summaries experimental and clinical evidence that shows a causative involvement of ROS/RNS in other disease processes and related conditions. These include skin and eye disorders, diseases of reproductive system, arthritic disorders and sepsis, as well as exercise, regenerative medicine, and nanomedicine.
